Save Your Batteries! Curbside Battery Collection is April 15 - 26
Brampton, ON (Apr. 9, 2019) – Residents who are saving their single-use household batteries can place these out for curbside collection, which runs from April 15 – 26, 2019. Residents can visit peelregion.ca/waste to check their battery collection date.
This collection service provides residents a convenient way to ensure that their batteries are disposed of safely. Thanks to our residents’ efforts, we have helped towards conserving our environment’s resources by recycling 54 tonnes of batteries since 2016, bringing our Peel community closer to achieving 75% waste diversion by 2034.
- Set out only single-use A, AA, AAA, C, D, 9 volt and button cell household batteries in a transparent, sealable bag. On your collection day, place the bag of batteries on top of your closed organics cart. If you don't have an organics cart, place your bag of batteries beside your recycling bags.
- Take household batteries to battery drop-off barrels throughout Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon.
- Drop off all other batteries to one of Peel’s Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) year-round free of charge.
Visit peelregion.ca/waste to find a CRC or drop-off barrel near you.
